  1. Most useless unit in Fire Emblem?

    It largely depends on the game in question. I'd say Est in the games she's featured in, considering even units who join after her (like Elice, for example) have some kind of value. In Gaiden/Echoes I'd say the least useful unit is Delthea, though. Est joins similarly late but in Gaiden at least she's incredibly powerful due to her class. I like Doot, but she's a weak unit. In FE4 it's Arden, probably? He gives you the pursuit ring but beyond that he's not too hot. You'll get 'em next time, man. I can't speak about FE5. There are a lot of very weak units in FE6, but I think the absolute worst is Wolt. Joining early means nothing if you are little more than a liability the entire time you're force-deployed. Archers are always bad, but with his vomit-tier bases he is beyond bad. Admittedly, his chip damage is marginally useful in the first few chapters...but if we talk about the minor contributions of every unit and decide that this makes them viable, we'll have no bad units left. Similarly, Rebecca is the worst in FE7. Doing 10 damage to a handful of pegasi is not a contribution significant enough to outweigh the rest of her drawbacks. Don't use Rebecca. I know, she's cute. In FE8 the worst is probably Amelia, but Ewan is so horrible that they kind of share the spot. Amelia's greater availability is offset by her inferior damage type - Ewan is able to deal damage at a distance and target the often weaker resistance stat. But Ewan is just a bad est-mage. I can't speak about FE9 or 10. See above for FE11 and 12. The most useless unit in Awakening is Donnel. I shouldn't have to tell you why. The most useless unit in Birthright and Conquest is Mozu. Sorry, kid. You're better in Rev, because your competition includes the Rev Nohrian retainers. No unit in Heroes is truly useless. Even garbage like Odin can be made solid with the right IV and investment. One extreme corner case example doesn't invalidate the idea that - in general - high-movement, mounted units are superior to infantry units.
  2. Not being able to double on enemy phase only makes player phase more important because now enemy phase becomes "fight enough enemies to choke a point and then wait for the bots to move." It lends to more repetitive, slower gameplay in a game with high enemy density, so the best route is to go with Shadow Dragon quality enemies in small amounts. It could be cool.
  3. Restart SP glitch.

    Oh, THAT's what caused it! I was wondering why Narcian and Tiki were gaining 768 SP per kill lol. Didn't make the connection that I was restarting.
  4. Serenes Forest 5★ Lv.40+10 Compendium Thread

    My first and probably only +10. If it weren't for the 4* and 5* focus banner a couple months ago there's no way I'd have this.
  5. An idea for a FE character

    It would be better if he came back 3 chapters later, and with much better stats. Give him a reason for it in the story, maybe? Of course if he dies 2 or 1 chapter before the final map he'll come back then. Then again, that could cause people to send in their Jesus to die... Regardless I think it's neat.
  6. New Tempest Trial+: Sweet Dreams [Datamine]

    Sucks that we don't get a free summer unit and the reward is Masked Marth again, but at least that means you don't have to have a seasonal to get bonus score right away I suppose.
  7. Do you have a preference in the type of pokemon you choose

    I pick the pokemon I like based on design. When I was a kid I planned my teams but I've found that that makes the game boring and predictable. It's much more like an adventure if you choose as you go.
  8. least favorite character in the series personality wise

    Remove Izana. He's just so disgustingly casual. Flippant, flamboyant leaders have no place in Fire Emblem.
  9. I can see why you'd think this, sure. I don't find force deployment to be either a good or a bad thing with regards to a unit's overall viability.
  10. Best: Corrin. The most versatile unit in a game where your versatility more or less decides your value is going to be excellent. Corrin can do just about anything well if built properly, and they aren't held back by availability (Sigurd), late promotion (Hector, Ike, Ephraim), or being weapon-locked (the rest). The only real competitor is Robin, which is admittedly a very close match, but Corrin is useful out of the gate with or without a reclass while Robin takes some work to be as broken as s/he can be and almost certainly needs to be reclassed to a dark mage. Alm is another possible contender, given that his bases carry him through his entire game and he's actually a very good combat unit, but he isn't as ludicrous in terms of potential as either MU and also doesn't have the luxury of master seal promotion. Worst: Roy. If I need to explain why Roy is the worst lord in the series to you, you must be new. While other GBA lords, such as Eliwood, Lyn, and Eirika, are also sword-locked units with bad movement, they all have something that makes them marginally useful; respectively these are a good promotion, viable stats in the very early chapters, and both. That isn't to say that those three are good, but they have some semblance of utility compared to poor Roy, who is really only decent for 3 chapters and is dead weight starting in Chapter 1 (especially on hard mode). The closest one to Roy is Marth, but Marth was very good in FE1 and decent in FE3 - he was only bad in the DS remakes, where he's arguably worse than Roy for not even having 3 chapters of viability on the higher difficulties. The other contenders for worst, Leif and Micaiah, are underrated and have value in their games.
  11. so much for castlevania emblem

    Lol that was debunked a long time ago. And it's good that it was false, I say.
  12. Fire Emblem Three Houses

    Looks great! I'm looking forward to seeing more in-depth gameplay. Glad it got delayed; the longer the wait the better the game will turn out to be.
  13. Things You Fear As A Writer?

    1. The story is less original than I realize. 2. The horror isn't as scary/grotesque/etc. as I envision it in my mind. 3. The reader won't resonate with my character. 4. A character is unintentionally a self-insert. 5. I could be using stronger vocabulary and more detail. 6. I'm using too much detail. 7. My pacing isn't right. 8. My dialogue isn't right. 9. The scenario could be more interesting but I don't know how to make it so. ...I could go on, but I won't.
  14. Should you level up your lords to above 50?

    I don't level them up at all, let alone to 50 haha. Geitz is good but I don't find he's all that necessary in the modes in which you can reasonably level the lords that high, and the exp in HHM is so low early on that it's hard to level them up at all. (Hector notwithstanding, of course, because he'll probably be level 20 by that chapter. It's Eliwood and Lyn you have to consider).
  15. What in the world are you trying to say lol
  16. Fire Emblem Heroes Wishlist

    Actually, almost all the characters I want are in the game. Farina, Canas, Lena, and Flora are the only ones off the top of my head that I'd like in the game.
  17. Wrys can be replaced with a vulnerary. Sorry, old chap. Bord and/or Cord are safe to remove or merge. I'd probably cut them both. Roshea and Vyland can be merged. Same with Wolf and Sedgar. Cesar and Radd can go, or they can be merged into one actually good unit (Cesaradd?). Roger can go. Merge Dolph and Macellan, as someone suggested before. Make Dolphellan stronger, too, so he can actually take a hit or two when he joins. Tomas can go. I like the idea of getting either Samson or Astram and it being a player choice, so I would keep both. All of the characters from Gaiden chapters can go, unless you're going to add the gaidens in which case I would only keep Etzel and maybe Athena. Xane would probably have to be made into a dancer or something, unless you can code the chameleon mechanic into FE7.
  18. Should FE keep secret items?

    I'm all for secrets. I love finding out new things when I play a game!
  19. Depends on the banner. If all the colors are represented strongly then go for the full wheel. That never happens, though, so I just snipe what I want.
  20. If I need a silver to kill a troublesome enemy at any point in the game I use it. I ditch iron weapons pretty fast in games where there's no weight or where the weight goes against strength. In games with con I ditch iron swords quick, but keep iron lances and axes around because their steel counterparts are awful and way too heavy. In other words I use the weapon for the particular situation at hand, not the stage of the game I'm in. Hoarding strong weapons is silly.
  21. I used everyone when I first played Echoes, but didn't grind. It was pretty challenging that way, but the game is still really easy - enough so that you can kind of use whoever you want. Usually, though, I just use whatever unit is best for a given job (which may not be a trained unit).
  22. Rath vs Rebecca

    Rebecca is toilet, if you must use a bow user take Rath. If you play Eliwood or Hector mode without playing Lyn mode he has great bow rank + decent bases, and if you used him in Lyn Mode he'll also be pretty strong. Still, as @Mandokarla recommended I wouldn't take either one as bows are pretty bad in FE7. I can't be bothered to do a breakdown of the numbers but the availability gap doesn't really affect just how much worse Rebecca is than Rath, it's really not close lol
  23. I find that defensive units require specific builds while offensive units are more flexible. Plus, generally speaking, most players find offensive units more fun to use.
  24. FE11 H5 0% growths warpless LTC

    Didn't expect a 1-turn for the end but I'm pleasantly surprised. Good show.
  25. Grinding vs limited resources

    Grinding is for booboo bitches, dude.
